G.SKILL Ripjaws V DDR4-3200 8GB Dual
     Thu, Oct 08 2015 | 5:35P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"G.SKILL is definitely a name you have to think of when it comes to high-performance memory. G.SKILL entered the DDR4 market with their Ripjaws 4 quad channel kits that launched with the Intel X99 chipset. Now that we have DDR4 on the mainstream Z170 chipset G.SKILL comes back with Ripjaws V, which are available in quite a few different offerings and offer a more subtle look. G.SKILL is offering their Ripjaws V memory in speeds all the way up to 3600 MHz in both 8GB and 16GB dual channel kits. Today we will be taking a look at the F4-3200C16D-8GVK kit which is an 8GB kit that runs at 3200 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V. Let’s get this kit in our Z170 system and see what it can do!"

Subtle looks. Massive capacity. We tested the Kingston HyperX Fury HX426C15FBK4/32 4x8GB DDR4 RAM along with three other sets from G.Skill and Patriot.

Kingston HyperX FURY DDR4-2666 16GB Memory Kit Review
     Sun, Oct 04 2015 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the introduction of Intel’s Z170 chipset the mainstream finally gets their hands on DDR4 memory. If you remember DDR4 was first seen in the consumer market on Intel’s high-end desktop X99 platform. Those kits were all quad-channel kits, but with the Z170 chipset we have dual-channel kits. Kingston’s HyperX FURY line was introduced with DDR3 and made its way to DDR4 in quad-channel kits for X99. Now we have dual-channel kits available in 16GB and 8GB capacities. The HyperX FURY DDR4 modules have a sleek heatspreader matched with an all black PCB, which looks awesome. Today we will be taking a look at the HX426C15FBK2/16 kit, which is made up of two 8GB modules running at 2666 MHz with timings of 15-17-17 at 1.2V. Let’s take a look and see what this kit can do!"

Kingston DataTraveler microDUO 3C USB 3.1 Drive Review
     Sat, Sep 26 2015 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite the wide adoption of cloud solutions, physical storage remains strong although it has evolved a lot from what was just common portable media before the advent of online storage. Compact sizes are expected and drives that are seemingly just USB connector ends are much more common, although having much faster transfer rates than what compact and floppy discs offer. …

Crucial Ballistix Sport 2400MHz 32GB (4x8GB) Quad Channel Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Sep 25 2015 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When purchasing a computer, RAM generally is the last component that you tend to think about and when you do come to think of it; quantity is the only real factor you tend to consider. That is if you don’t have a colour scheme or a limited amount of DIMM slots to accommodate RAM. Since the early days of computing, RAM has come a long way, the most recent format DDR has seen four iterations. The latest being DDR4, which has surpassed DDR3 as the new mainstream RAM type and has introduced memory speeds up to and surpassing 3333+MHz.

Kingston 32GB Data Traveler Micro Duo 3C
     Fri, Sep 25 2015 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Kingston's Data Traveler Micro Duo 3C is not going to be the fastest drive out on the market, but that is not what it is built for. It is built to provide unparalleled interoperability between many different platforms and operating systems using the USB 3.1 standard, while being backwards compatible with older USB standards. As far as performance goes, it hits all the right results and over-delivers against the rated speeds for the drive. From a functionality perspective, you will need a USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 port on your chosen device to maximize the performance potential of the drive. Available for use with Windows, Linux, Chrome, and MAC OS X devices, Kingston has the majority of the market covered with compatibility for USB 3.1/3.0 and USB 2.0 functionality. Not a bad scenario when you get down to it.”

The RAM Disk Guide Rev. 2.1.
     Thu, Sep 24 2015 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The RAM disk has been around since the 1980s, but it has never been popular due to the high cost of computer memory. It is now making a comeback, partly because RAM is now cheap and plentiful and partly because solid state drives (SSDs) are fast replacing hard disk drives as the storage medium of choice. SSDs are not only much faster than hard disk drives, they are silent and virtually impervious to vibration and shock. The downside though is their limited lifespan. That's where the RAM disk comes in - it allows the user to reduce wear and tear on the SSD by shifting some of the work to it. There are, of course, pros and cons to the RAM disk, and this guide will guide you through it all. On top of that, we will teach you how to make full use of your RAM disk.

Patriot EP Series Micro SD Card (32 GB) Review
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to flash storage, it seems as though each day we see a significant milestone reached, especially when it comes to the reduced size of today’s flash modules. As this trend continues, camera and camcorder manufactures quickly adapt to allow these new modules to be used, which in turn allows for more physical space inside of the camera and camcorder for greater capabilities. And if it’s not the increasing of space within the unit, it’s the reduced physical size of the camera or camcorder. Today we are looking at the Patriot EP Series Micro SD Card, a minuscule SD card which can be used in most of today’s action cameras and camcorders.

Kingston HyperX Predator DDR 3000C15 Quad-Channel Memory Kit Review
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
August 2014, Intel launched its high-end X99 platform, a brand new socket in need of DDR4 modules. DDR4 warrants massive bandwidth plus they can also pack a far higher density per stick. All this goodness is available at your disposal while requiring a mere 1.2-1.35Volts. Only drawback, as with each new technology was at launch the high retail price; half a year later these prices have stabilized and even the high end kits are becoming more and more affordable. Today we have a look at one of the HyperX enthusiast kits: the 3000C15 quad channel kit, the fastest kit in their DDR4 Quad Channel ready X99 lineup. Will the out of the box speeds satisfy the hunger of this enthusiast reviewer or is there more under the hood?

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
     Thu, Sep 17 2015 | 3:31P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston HyperX Cloud II gaming headset are well built and should provide for years of enjoyment. The sound quality is very good for music and movies, and the virtual surround does a good job to simulate that you are in the game. I am never overly convinced by surround sound headsets, but these do work rather well. I found the headset to be very comfortable, and they should be adjustable to suit users with all sorts of head sizes and shapes.

G.Skill Ripjaws V 3600 MHz DDR4 (2x 4 GB)
     Wed, Sep 16 2015 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's new Skylake platform comes with DDR4 at increased memory speeds, and the first to help us investigate the benefits of high-performance DDR4 is G.Skill's latest design, the Ripjaws V. Wrapped in a new look, these ultra-fast 3600 MHz modules push the limits of your Skylake CPU.

The Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB 1866MHz DDR3 Memory
     Mon, Sep 14 2015 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Kingston HyperX Fury memory kits are all plug and play memory, but is also compatible with AMD systems. While you can change the frequencies in the BIOS manually, Fury is essentially “no fuss” plug and play without the need for BIOS or memory profile selection. Only one internal SPD profile is available so it should be as easy as powering up the system, and watching your settings flash at the BIOS boot up screen. The Kingston HyperX Fury 16 GB 1866 MHz DDR3 kit offers simplicty, higher frequencies, more memory bandwidth, a very attractive design, and an value oriented price point. Let’s put them to the test!"

"Since USB flash drivers were released they have become invaluable for transferring data from computer to computer. From simple photos to important documents USB flash drives make it easy for anyone to move their data. One thing that is often overlooked when it comes to these devices is security. Well Kingston has a great solution to that problem with their DataTraveler Locker+ G3. This USB 3.0 flash drive features hardware encryption and password protection to keep all of your data on your drive safe and secure. Let’s take a look and see what this drive is all about!"

Silicon Power Blaze B50 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sun, Aug 30 2015 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much like everything else in the PC market storage media have evolved a lot compared to even just 10 years ago both in terms of performance and capacity. Just imagine that 10 years ago the highest capacity and performance USB 2.0 flash drive one could find in the market (and i had) was just 4GB and could reach speeds up to 33MB/s read and 10MB/s write whereas now we have many 128/256GB models in the lab capable of reaching speeds up to 450MB/s for both read and write and as many of you are aware there are even 1TB models available in the market like the Predator by Kingston and the T1 by Samsung. Of course not everyone can afford the high-end 512/1TB drives and honestly i don't think they really have to since even 128GB is not something the majority of consumers will ever fill with data they need to carry around with them. Still prices for 128GB USB 3.0 flash drives have reached an all-time low and thus today we'll be taking a look at the latest model by Silicon Power, the Blaze B50.

GeIL EVO POTENZA 16GB 2400MHz Memory Kit Review
     Sun, Aug 30 2015 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GeIL, or Golden Emperor International Limited, are certainly not a new player in the technology industry even if many people in the “West” have not heard of them. GeIL Memory are veterans of the DRAM industry having made memory products since 1993. GeIL as a broader company also make power supplies under the Thortech Power brand and they make peripherals under the EpicGear brand. Today we are looking at GeIL’s EVO POTENZA memory kit described as a product for “hardcore gamers”. More specifically we have the 16GB 2400MHz kit from GeIL which boasts a lifetime warranty, a beautiful white and black design and full native Intel Z77/Z87/Z97 support with XMP profiles. You can of course use the RAM with other platforms but with such a high frequency those platforms are recommended most.
